Fire Prevention - Plan Review Status

Plan review comments update every hour. Please allow sufficient time for new comments to load prior to contacting a plan reviewer.
 


We are in the process of transitioning to a new plan review and inspection database. As a result, the plan review and plan log status reports will change and may not be available for a period of time. Please be patient with us during this transition as we work hard to improve our processes and communication to our customers.

NOTE - THE NOTED DISAPPROVED ITEMS MAY NOT CONSTITUTE A COMPLETE LIST OF VIOLATIONS. THE DESIGNER IS TO CONDUCT A COMPLETE RE-REVIEW OF THE PLANS FOR ADDITIONAL VIOLATIONS OF THE STANDARD COMMENTS AND INCORRECT INFORMATION PRIOR TO RESUBMITTING.

 System plans must be picked up within 30 days. All system plans left longer than 30 days will be discarded as abandoned.
